The bombshell SCOTUS leak headlines the media happenings, in Signals & Noise
It's been quite a month for big stories in and about the media.
Exhibit A: the leak to Politico about the draft Supreme Court decision nixing abortion in America.
Exhibit B: Elon Musk comes up with the money to buy Twitter, and run it as a private business.
We don't know how far down the alphabet we'll get, but there's plenty to discuss in this month's edition of Signals & Noise.
Our regulars discuss the hot topics: Chris Lucas from the Southern Oregon University Communication faculty, and Cal Poly-Humboldt Journalism and Mass Communication Chair Victoria Sama.
Join us for a discussion that can include topics as disparate as video-streaming services and the best Victorian novels.
